Webinar - Supports and Systems for Improving Access to and Sustainability of Family Child Care

This webinar introduces two new resources on promising strategies to improve the quality of care, engage family child care (FCC) providers, and sustain provider participation in regulatory systems and quality improvement initiatives.

Supporting Access to High-Quality Family Child Care: A Policy Assessment and Planning Tool for States, Territories, and Tribes is a tool that provides a framework for assessing regional, state, and local policies and practices to ensure they support access to high-quality FCC options. Engaging Family Child Care Providers in Quality Improvement Systems is a brief that outlines outreach strategies and initiatives to engage and support FCC providers.

The webinar features insights from Amanda Szekely, a Senior Technical Assistance Specialist on state policy with ZERO TO THREE and the author of the FCC policy assessment and planning tool; Harriet Feldlaufer, the Director of the Division of Early Care at the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood and the State Administrator for the federal Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program, who is currently working to establish a statewide initiative to support FCC providers; and Erica Phillips, the Chief Operating Officer of All Our Kin, a staffed FCC network in New Haven, Connecticut, that supports both license-exempt and licensed FCC providers.
